Students looking for prom dresses will be able to purchase from My Sister’s Dress on this Saturday between 10 a.m and 1 p.m. at MCC.

McHenry County College will be hosting the annual charity event My Sister’s Dress. This event comes back every year, and offers a cheaper option to those who need to purchase formal apparel for school dances.

The event will begin on Saturday March 2, during the hours of 10 – 1 p.m. Anybody will be able to purchase from the event.

Those that want to donate can donate at MCHS Upper Campus and at stores in Crystal Lake and Algonquin.

My Sister’s Dress is a charity that offers low priced options for those that need help buying dresses for homecoming or prom.

“My Sister’s Dress has contacted different high schools for years,” said math teacher and Key Club advisor Emma Theel. “They do this so they can hopefully donate gently worn homecoming or prom dresses that they can use for the sale.”

The sale runs purely off of donations and relies on people to donate their old dresses, these donations allow them to sell more apparel to those that need it.

“Anybody can donate,” said Theel. “We have a drop off here at the north security desk, as well as places in Algonquin and Crystal Lake.”

The dresses and other apparel such as shoes and bags are sold at a reduced price to help give a more affordable option to those that need a good outfit on a budget.

“It is available for everyone” Theel said, “You don’t have to show proof of income or anything.”

MCHS is a big part of the sale, donating many dresses to help enhance the stock. “This year we probably donated about 20 dresses,” Theel said. “Last year we donated around 60, because it was the first time since after the pandemic.
